Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 229 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 229 of Observed.Tech. This weeks show is a couple of days late because of my travel back from Build 2017 in Seattle and some recovery time but in this episode I walk through all the major announcements that impact Windows 10 and the new ecosystem Microsoft discussed last week. Before I dived into details from Build, I addressed an email I received from a listener last week after I talked about and subsequently removed the links to subscribe to the podcast in Zune. It helped me understand some still make tech choices that are different than my own which is OK as long as it does not compromise security of your OS ecosystem. That link is now back on this show page in the options below due to that email. I then spend most of the show talking about new features for the now officially dubbed Fall Creators Update (Redstone 3) such as OneDrive Files On-Demand, Timeline, Pick Up Where You Left Off, a new Cloud-powered Clipboard and Story Remix – the most popular demo from nearly five hours of keynotes. In addition I cover the new Fluent Design Language, what we have known as Project NEON until now, and how that is starting to appear in more first party apps on both Windows 10 desktop and mobile devices. Links to all of the related news are on the Show Notes page so make sure you go visit there and read through all the details I highlighted in this episode. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 195 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 195 of Observed Tech. It is good to be back behind the mike after this six week hiatus and I give you an update on what has been happening over the last month and a half to get everyone up to speed. I then get to jump in and talk about the latest and greatest stuff happening in tech that I have been keeping an eye on. Of course, no other subject kicks off an episode of Observed Tech better then Windows 10 and where we are on the latest builds for testers and those on the current branch release. After that I delve into Windows mobile and where we are on both the OS, app and hardware aspect of things. Big news tied to this is the sale of Microsoft’s feature phone business and there official comments about the future of Windows 10 for mobile and the current line of Lumia phones. There has also been quite a few new/updated Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps released. They bring new functionality to services like OneDrive, the Windows Store and the Feedback Hub which is now available to all Windows 10 users so they can submit feedback to Microsoft on the new OS. Last week there was a big Microsoft Band update that includes a new hiking activity tile and a new desktop version of the Microsoft Health UWP app so we have that covered as well. Finally we share some great resources about Windows as a Service, Microsoft Azure, OneNote 2016 and a convenience roll up for Windows 7/8.1 users that brings hundreds of updates into a consolidated package for those older operating system. Finally I share news about new logos and missions for SuperSite: Windows and IT Pro: Windows and the fact that next week I will be using an iPhone 5c for two weeks of immersion into iOS and the Microsoft ecosystem on the Apple platform. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
